It Is What It Is

tumblr_static_it-is-what-it-is… and it is ALWAYS going to be OK.

That is the only thing you ever need to remember in life. Whatever happens…  it is ALL going to be OK.

We are so quick to judge events in our lives as good or bad. If it gets labeled “good,” it’s time to go out and celebrate, and if it is labeled “bad,” we can easily fall into a dark space feeling somewhat victimized.

The difference between these two states is purely perception. All events in our lives are relatively equal in their capacity to teach us a lesson and mold us into smarter, wiser and more balanced human beings. But indeed, most of our best learning opportunities are experiences that have challenged us.

Don’t judge a situation as good or bad. Once it has been labeled by you, your perception creates your own reality. An event is just that – an event. You are the one who deems it positive or negative and then you will be the only one experiencing the fallout of your own perception.

The wise say, “When you are going through hell, just KEEP GOING.” Don’t stop and label it as hell and allow yourself to suffer. Just keep pushing through it and before you know it, you will come out the other side where the sun is shining. The sun never goes in. It is always out in some part of the world. Just like in life, the sun never sets on us, but we tend to want to wallow in pity and pain and as a result we drag ourselves into long, dark tunnels.

You are in control of whether or not you allow yourself to get stuck in a dark tunnel. Everything is what it is – and it is ALWAYS going to be OK however you decide to label it. So make it easier on yourself. Remember that you are never alone. You are supremely taken care of. There is a divine force in place that is guiding you towards learning and once we realize that our darkness is attributed to our own perceptions, then we can allow the sun to come out again.

Any event is what it is, but it will ALWAYS become what you make of it.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
